Ex-Europe ETFdb Portfolio

Published on July 6, 2011 | Updated February 11, 2014

Portfolio Strategy

The Ex-Europe ETFdb Portfolio is designed for investors who are seeking to build a broad-based portfolio but are interested in steering clear of European economies. The desire to avoid European stocks and bonds in a portfolio may stem from a number of different investment theses; some may be concerned that the number of issues facing the continent are pointing towards a prolonged period of disappointing economic growth, while others might simply believe that there are better opportunities elsewhere. With the notable exception of Europe, this ETFdb Portfolio includes exposure to all other major regions of the globe, including the U.S., Asia, and South America. This ETFdb Portfolio is constructed with an asset allocation strategy of 60% equity, 35% in fixed income, and 5% in real estate, although these weightings may be tweaked depending on willingness and ability to take on risk (those looking for less risk may wish to increase the fixed income allocation, and vice versa).
